One of the main purposes of the Montessori Method is to create independence in children from an early age. This independence focuses on all aspects of the lives of children, from learning and understanding of abstract concepts, to autonomy when carrying out activities of daily living, such as cooking.
Although the tasks that can be carried out in each of these cases are evolving over time, there are many other areas in which children can benefit from their early years, without causing any risks and promoting their brain development.
In the case of cooking, it is one of the basic activities for this type of education in the classroom. Of course, in order for this to be positive, our methods and activities must be tailored to the age of children.
